Father/son camping trip to Camp Strong Wood this weekend. Awesome views, great trails to hike on. The lake is stocked and close to camp sites - very accessible and friendly.
Chris was awesome, very helpful and kind.
We're planning to return with the troop of scouts to make it a tradition!

A great weekend break! Our six year old went camping for the first time ever and she loved it. Chris was super nice and helpful too.

There were some clear cleanliness and mold issues with the bathroom, long dirt road between the bathroom and the campsites, no sign out front gate so it was challenging to know if you were in the right place, bad service/no service, which is fine for camping, however it is a safety concern if you were traveling alone. Campsite had bullet casings and trash on the ground, but the lake was beautiful.

John and Chris were very accommodating and answered any questions I had. You definitely get the outdoor primitive experience with quietness from the outer world.

Paradise is a tough thing to describe until you come across it. Superlatives are all one can use for CSW. Chris and John are the wisest and most gracious hosts to work with. They cater to everything with grace and seemingly effortless panache. The tent setup on the lake was almost a great north experience. We were blessed with great temps and weather and a spotless night sky. Milky Way we see you! From the homesteading, expensive services provided and our two new best cat friends we felt more relaxed and at ease over the weekend than we have in years. Give this place your time and it will reward you with a peace of paradise. Keep doing what you are doing. We will be back.

I unfortunately had to leave in the middle of the night because of a family emergency, but the groundskeeper, Chris, was so nice and made awesome pork chops and even one for my dog! The lake area is beautiful!

Heaven for campers, this place gives you everything you could want (swimming in lakes, awesome organic food, baby lambs, etc). For no extra fees, you can paddle out to the middle of a beautiful lake. You also have the choice to upgrade to cabins built by the caretaker and cook, Chris, who was outstandingly hospitable and kind. Can’t say enough great things about our experience there, and if you’re in the area, it’s an absolute must!

I had to change plans last minute due to some incoming thunderstorms, but John was very helpful and offered me the chance to visit in the future.
